High Winds Greet October

Graphic showing areas affected by High Winds today


Watch out for high winds this morning across certain areas of western North Carolina on this first day of October. 


Here is the text from the Special Weather Statement from the National Weather Service:

As high pressure builds in from the north... strong northerly winds
continue to be forced over ridge tops mainly along the Blue Ridge
Escarpment. Some locations just downwind of the Escarpment may
experience winds in the 40 to 50 mph range... with possibly higher
gusts for the next few hours. A few trees may be knocked down by
these winds.
